12k GF Locket on Gilt Sterling Chain ~ Turquoise, Pearls, Memento & Photo Inside
With grace and sentiment, this darling locket was designed to hold memories. The locket dates to c1875. The gold tests to 12kt. We think it is gold filled rather than solid gold. Tastefully decorated with natural turquoise cabuchons and seed pearls. There is a stylized garden of forget-me-nots, signifying memories. The ornate bail has a trifoliate silhouette and gold detail complimenting that on the locket case. The back is plain. The locket opens to show us an early photo of a young man on one side and a lock of hair on the other. The locket hangs on a gilt sterling silver chain that is a replacement. The locket measures 1 3/8” without the bail, 1 7/8” with the bail. The chain is 18” long. All is in very fine condition. This is a lovely antique locket, poignantly decorated with motifs symbolizing love and remembrance. Free USA shipping via USPS.
